French legend Thierry Henry said he feels ‘sorry’ for Manchester United’s Romelu Lukaku after his unpleasant performance against Man City on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho hosted Pep Guardiola and his men at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, but the home side were unable to earn any point from the clash.
Spanish star player David Silva scored the first goal in the game to give the sky blue club an early lead. The Spaniard took advantage of a defensive mistake from the red devils to score from close range.
Marcus Rashford made it 1-1 before halftime, but the visitors scored another goal during the second half, and held on to it till the final whistle.
Romelu failed to find the back of the net once more, although he saw a shot saved by Man City shot-stopper Ederson.
And former Arsenal captain Thierry Henry, speaking on the Manchester Derby, explained why he feels sorry for the former Everton striker during the game.
The Frenchman said he was actually expecting the Belgian forward to be heavily criticised for not being able to score in a crucial game of that sort.
Lukaku has been heavily criticised for his inability to perform against top clubs, and many Man United fans are not pleased with him at the moment.
